   Hello, dear!
   
   Present a model of the BTR-80A Hungarian peacekeeping contingent. In Hungary these cars even more than in his native Russia, so why not? Model ACE much better than their old sets, and especially at first glance leaves a very good impression, but the "special" features are present in abundance. For example, none of the hatch on my place was not without serious adjustment. Detailing is good, but some items, such as lights or wheels absolutely filthy. On the Board of photo-etched parts are combined lovely details, like fencing headlights and completely inapplicable, such as the rear bumper, which bend faces. So in my opinion the road is the firm to choose the right, but go long. Importantly, this set can assemble similar to the prototype model, and it is not very bad.

   The model is painted with TAMIYA acrylic. Color specific Hungarian variations of the standard NATO camouflage have hurt himself. Applied the technique of oil points. Filters, pollution-dust, chips of the enamel are mixed from TAMIYA. Lucky MICROSCALE, but this time they did not like me, maybe because long lie.
   
   All in all, thank you for your attention!
